“This book is perfectly named. The title describes the characters in the story and also recommends it be read during a relaxing weekend on the beach, by the pool, or curled up on the couch at home. True to her roots, Andrews serves up a mystery complete with a dead body and lots of secrets, many of which don't get revealed until the very end. And to add a touch of urgency, there's a hurricane. What could be better?”Rona Brinlee, The BookMark
